The Waterbury Parking Division has announced the introduction and installation of a new “Parking Pay Station” system for Downtown Waterbury. The City of Waterbury now joins the ranks of hundreds of other cities across the United States employing this method for downtown parking.
Rather than have parking meters situated at every on street parking space in the downtown area, a Pay Station is situated in various areas on the sidewalks of Downtown Waterbury streets. Parking patrons can purchase their parking time directly at the Pay Station by depositing either coinage, credit card, or token. The Patron can buy various amounts of time or the maximum allowed. A receipt is delivered from the Pay Station which must then be displayed face up on the driver’s side dashboard. Enforcement will remain the same as Parking Monitors check the displayed receipts for any elapsed time.
In an effort to continue the same standard of serving the public with greater efficiency and improved customer service, the City has chosen the “Hectronic” Pay Station system to modernize the Buckingham Garage located at 250 Bank Street. This technology allows the customer to pay for their parking at one of 3 Pay Station locations at entrances to the Garage.
